Thank you to all who replied to my inquiry (which is attached below).
The consensus is that I should have installed using MacTEX and not
install-tl. So now my question is how to fix this.
Should I just install with MacTEX over my current installation?
Or, is there a simple set of steps I can take to set up the correct
links and env variables (and make those env variables permanent)?
Thanks again to the quick replies.
